Hey guys, there seems to be a referencing error on the Main Page. I looked at the page source but sadly could not find the source of the error. It may be also be coming from the transcluded templates being used on the Main Page. Anyways, just was passing by and thought you should know this. On another note, I must say you guys have a terrific Main Page.--[[w:c:Halo:User:Spartacus0898|<span style="color:#390">'''Spartacus'''</span>]] <sup>'''[ [[w:c:Halo:User talk:Spartacus0898|<span style="color:#F00">Talk</span>]] • [[w:c:Community:User:Spartacus0898|<span style="color:#F00">Central</span>]] ]'''</sup> 16:25, November 16, 2013 (UTC)

== New page layout ==
   
For heavens sake! Can we all just make this clear: the Harry Potter series is an ENGLISH creation, the author of the Harry Potter series is ENGLISH and all of the characters in the films and books alike use ENGLISH terminology! I have no predjudices against Americans but PPPLLLLEEEEAAAASSSSEEE! All information displayed in articles should use the ENGLISH terminology, hence it is not the sorcerors stone its the PHILOSOPHERS STONE! {{unsigned|JACOBSMITH95}}

What do people think of the new look? I personally find the fact that the only search option is at the top, above the adds disturbing, and the need to specify whether or not the searcher wishes to search only this wiki annoying at best, and very dissapointing at worst. I'm all for fixing things that are broken, and for changing things up now and again, but this feels like the opposite of improving the user interface, and I for one greatly dislike it.

== Dates ==
+
==Junk Edit==
   
I believe that all the dates used in this wikia are one year late. I beleve this because the way to find the dates in The Harry Potter Series are based upon the year that James and Lilly Potter died. To find the date you add however old Harry is to the date they died and you have the date. When actually Harry was 1 year old at the time of his parents' deaths, so you must subtract one year from the date. I have evidence in the article on [[Sybill Trelawney]] in the "Behind the scenes" section: it states that, "Trelawney told Lavender Brown that the worst thing for her will come true on Friday, October 16th . However, October 16th, 1993 was a Saturday,"; but on October 16th, 1992 is, however, a Friday. I rest my case.
+
Someone is doing junk edits. The admins need to revert the changes and ban the editor.[[User:Cloudtheavenger|Cloudtheavenger]] ([[User talk:Cloudtheavenger|talk]]) 07:50, June 14, 2014 (UTC)
   
--[[User:TonKampon96|TonKampon96]] 21:18, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
+
==Take some pride== 
   
:Actually, the dates are based upon [[Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington]]'s 500th Deathday party in the second book. As Nick is stated to have died on October 31, 1492, that sets the time of [[Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets]] as the 1992-1993 school year. This is confirmed in [[Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows]] by the dates on James and Lily Potter's gravestones. - [[User:Nick O&#39;Demus|Nick O&#39;Demus]] 21:25, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

== Spam ilter on ritz at Aberorth Dumbledore ==
 
 
I tried to edit this line to have proper phrasing:
 
 
:"When Aberorth pointed out that '''Ariana''' was in no it state to go with them, that their plans would leave '''her''' behind, and argued against them, [[Gellert Grindelwald]] became urious and used the [[Cruciatus Curse]] on Aberorth."
 
 
It won't let me save the change, because apparently the letter "''sixth letter in the alphabet''" is blacklisted. While it is ridiculous to have a single letter blacklisted anyway, I have checked the section, and "''sixth letter in the alphabet''" only occurs within the words themselves, and not even in the ones I changed. In summary, the spam ilter seems to be broken.[[User:KrytenKoro|<small>Glorious</small>]] [[User_talk:KrytenKoro|<small>CHAOS!</small>]] 04:40, January 10, 2010 (UTC)

== The Greatest Wizards of the Age ==
 
 
I think that Harry Potter had great reason to name his children after the two greatest wizards of the age. Albus Dumboldor and Severus Snape were great in their own ways. Different ways of course but still both were great. I think the three people listed are the best people in the world. They all should be remembered forever. But thats just what I believe. What do you believe?
 
 
I sometimes wonder WHY Hermione is so tipsy about breaking rules...in '''Chamber of Secrets''', is she not eager to break the rules herself to
 
 
make '''Polyjuice Potion? '''I myself think that Quidditch(the wizarding sport) is quite a good idea'''.'''
 
 
'''And folks,if you have not started reading J.K.Rowlings Harry Potters,you'd better make a start!!!'''

Can somebody please do this for me.
 
 
Ok but can you at least do me this image of fleur

Please do it. When I say the background I don't mean add Padma I mean the background used for the photo not Padma herself

== Changing the quick links ==
 
 
Now that we have pages for the separate ''[[Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I|Deathly Hallows: Part I]]'' and ''[[Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II|Deathly Hallows: Part II]]'' articles, would it be possible to change the ''Harry Potter series'' area in the sidebar to include these.
 
Also, we now have an article on the [[Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (video game)|''Deathly Hallows'' video game]], and so I think that should be added in the same area as we do with the others.
 
 
Also, under the ''Death Eaters'' it has [[Antonin Dolohov]], which I think is a bit pointless. It would be much better to have a link to [[Peter Pettigrew]] here.
 
 
I don't know how to do this, and so if anyone does, please could you tell me.

In the German version of the videogame ''Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets ''there's a Spell called Elasto that creates an elastic surface that allows you to jump higher when you step on it. You can see the spell in this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSDr_THJwaQ) around 1:45. This spell also appears as an entry on a German Harry Potter wiki (http://www.harrypotterwiki.de/wiki/Elasto).

I've used this wiki casually for some time. When I looked at the "Dennis Creevy" and "Peeves" articles today I wondered why there wasn't such a category as "Category:Characters_cut_from_the_movies" or something like that. I think it'd be helpful / interesting for all readers if it was created.
 
 
Please note that I don't use this wiki a lot, the only Wiki I know its whole history is Ice Age Wiki.

== Wizarding Population ==
 
 
If I were to guess on the wizarding population I would guess about 100 million or more, this is based on the information given on the Europe Potter Wiki page where it states that there are atleast 100.000 wizards and witches in Europe and 730.000.000 Muggles. The Wizard population in this area being 0.014% of it's muggle counter I felt it right to assume that the total Wizard population be the same .. so 0.014 x 6 775 235 700 = 94 853 299.8 [[User:Jackdd111|Jackdd111]] 19:48, September 2, 2011 (UTC)Jackdd111
 
 
== Minerva McGonagall ==
 
 
Minerva McGonagall was born in 1925 (which we can conclude through JK saying she was 70 during 1995... 1995-70= 1925 and through the information that she and Tom went to school together and Tom was born in 1926, also the page states she was a year older than him, which is true but that means that she wasn't born in 1935 does it?) That means the biographical information is wrong and such so someone needs to change it. I already changed the part in the paragraph form twice because someone changed it back after the first time, but it's pretty annoying when information is contradictory and then false because people see them and automatically change what is stated as true elsewhere...

Thank you Edit

Thanks for making this, everyone. I've just finished watching a box set of all eight films and this wiki has really helped me get the hang of who does what and why. Sophie 10:47, January 20, 2013 (UTC)

Misspelling Edit

The latest (as I type) "Did You Know" on the Main Page includes the word "favorite". This violates this wiki's language policy, which is that articles must be in British English. An admin needs to change it to "favourite". — RobertATfm (talk) 05:06, February 22, 2013 (UTC)

Good catch. I fixed it, thanks! ProfessorTofty (talk) 06:06, February 22, 2013 (UTC)

Congratulations Edit

Just realised, we now have 11,000 pages on this wiki! --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 22:10, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

Featured Poll Edit

I really think we should change the featured poll. It's there 4 such a long time, and watever ppl vote on it's still Prongs. Change it to something like, oh I dunno, something about the 4 houses or something. Arya Drottning (talk) 07:29, June 15, 2013 (UTC)

New Wiki Edit

I've just (under ten hours ago as I type) created a Cormoran Strike Wiki and would like this added to the Other Wikis section if this is OK. I also need plenty of editors to get the ball rolling (pun not intended)! — RobertATfm (talk) 14:57, July 16, 2013 (UTC)

Now that the new CS novel, Silkworm is due out the day after tomorrow, how about the CS wiki being linked to from the Main Page, as the TCV wiki is? And how about a few people heading over there to help? — RobertATfm (talk) 14:37, June 17, 2014 (UTC)
Strike the above. I'm merging both the JKR wikis I founded into a new one, The J. K. Rowling Adult Fiction Wiki. — RobertATfm (talk) 18:34, August 19, 2014 (UTC)

Czech HP WikiEdit

cs.harry-potter.wikia.com

Hi everyone, I'm the creator of this page and I would like to make it as a oficial Czech wikia page. I don't know who is the creator of cs.harrypotter.wikia.com, but the page is disaster. Can you please make my page oficial czech HP wikia on your page?

New film series: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Edit

Anyone care to add this to the site news? --xensyriaT 14:30, September 12, 2013 (UTC)

Reference Error on Main Page Edit

Hey guys, there seems to be a referencing error on the Main Page. I looked at the page source but sadly could not find the source of the error. It may be also be coming from the transcluded templates being used on the Main Page. Anyways, just was passing by and thought you should know this. On another note, I must say you guys have a terrific Main Page.--Spartacus [ TalkCentral ] 16:25, November 16, 2013 (UTC)

That comes from the "On This Day" section. Anytime the dates listed are referenced in the original date article, the reference is carried over to the current date template. But since the Main Page doesn't include the References list the date article does, it shows up as an error. - Nick O'Demus 16:29, November 16, 2013 (UTC)
If this bugs you, you could add a hidden reflist, like this:
  • <span style="display:none;">{{reflist}}</span>
Put on its own line at the end of the page (or at least after the references appear) and reference tags like this[1] won't give an error. Otherwise, you could add a visible reflist (maybe inside a scrolling list to reduce the impact) to the bottom of "On This Day". --xensyriaT 18:20, November 16, 2013 (UTC)

That got it. Thanks! - Nick O'Demus 19:06, November 16, 2013 (UTC)

New page layout Edit

What do people think of the new look? I personally find the fact that the only search option is at the top, above the adds disturbing, and the need to specify whether or not the searcher wishes to search only this wiki annoying at best, and very dissapointing at worst. I'm all for fixing things that are broken, and for changing things up now and again, but this feels like the opposite of improving the user interface, and I for one greatly dislike it. What does everyone else think about it? Dr. Galenos (talk) 18:48, April 30, 2014 (UTC)

Uh... I see no problems. Everything here seems to be fine to me - everything is where it should be. Though, admittedly, it will take a while for me to get used to the new look. I approve of it, Admins - you did good. --HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 19:29, June 27, 2014 (UTC)

Junk EditEdit

Someone is doing junk edits. The admins need to revert the changes and ban the editor.Cloudtheavenger (talk) 07:50, June 14, 2014 (UTC)

==Take some pride== 

Seriously? Don't you admins come here often to ensure junk edits don't happen? It's part of the responsbilities of an admin of a wikia.Cloudtheavenger (talk) 08:51, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

The last contributor to the page was an admin, and before that was a member of Wikia staff helping redesign. Either way, I fail to see where these "junk edits" are affecting. If you feel there's something wrong with the page, could you please point out where on the page is being affected? --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 11:11, June 18, 2014 (UTC)

Wiki change Edit

I am closing down the The Casual Vacancy wiki. Could an admin please update that link to the new one, The J. K. Rowling Adult Fiction Wiki, which of course covers both the wikis I previously founded. — RobertATfm (talk) 18:31, August 19, 2014 (UTC)

Yes check Done - Nick O'Demus 04:09, September 19, 2014 (UTC)

Languages Edit

Can an admin add "zh:" into the "languages" bar? AB Ng Talk 11:54, September 1, 2014 (UTC)

Yes check Done - Nick O'Demus 04:11, September 19, 2014 (UTC)

Christmas themeEdit

Does this Wikia have a Christmas theme during the Holidays or on the day itself? I swear I've seen it before. Gourgeist (talk) 05:56, September 11, 2014 (UTC)

No one? :[ Gourgeist (talk) 23:15, September 15, 2014 (UTC)

Yes, sometimes a Christmas theme is added by certain contributor(s) in the day or few before Christmas, if sufficient demand is given. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 23:30, September 15, 2014 (UTC)
Here is a snapshot by the Web Archive of the Main Page of this wiki on 7 December 2012, showing the Christmas theme it had then. — RobertATfm (talk) 00:22, September 16, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks guys! ^____^ Gourgeist (talk) 17:53, September 16, 2014 (UTC)

Films first, then booksEdit

Why are "Films" first and "Books" second on the main page, rather than the other way around? --Kritique (talk) 01:09, September 22, 2014 (UTC)
